What is Security Paper

Security Paper is used to help prevent Unauthorized Document Duplication.

Document Security Paper CAN:

Help the viewer or recipient identify and original document.
Act as a deterrent against unauthorized duplication.
Be manufactured with features that are impossible to accurately duplicate.

Document Security Paper CANNOT:

Cause the copy to print black, rendering it useless.
Distort the image thus rendering the copy useless.
Cause damage to or in any way change the original document when copied or scanned

To secure a document it is very important to use multiple security features.

A document that contains only one security feature, a VOID background for example may be easily duplicated on some photo copiers without the word VOID showing up on the copy. However add a ghost watermark to the back of the sheet, color change ink and micro printing to the front of the sheet now you have created a document that is virtually impossible to accurately duplicate using a photo copier or scanner.

There are TWO CATAGORIES for security features:

Active (Overt) Features and Passive (Covert) Features
